So, how do you think NL Central is going to go down this season?

Theo deals for another pitcher before the deadline and Cubs get a WC spot.

also interested in how Wacha's arm/ shoulder is…could have an effect on this race

Not a clear cut winner like in year's past, each team has their own share of questions.

1.) St. Louis Cardinals - Aging core should be able to hold on, pitching staff has health questions.
2.) Pittsburgh Pirates - Lost one of their core players, and pitching is due for regression.
3.) Chicago Cubs - Young, exciting team with hitters on the verge of making the big league team but lack of pitching hurts.
4.) Milwaukee Brewers - Got off to a torrid start last year, and faltered. I anticipate somewhere in between the two extremes last year.
5.) Cincinnati Reds - Should be more competitive than last year, but aging core and limited pitching.

For the upcoming 2017 season, I can see 3 teams from the NL Central make the playoffs, barring injuries.

1.) Cubs
2.) Cardinals
3.) Pirates
4.) Brewers
5.) Reds

Should be a lackluster year with only the Cubs and Cardinals competing.

Cubs will go back to being the Cubs, hopefully for another century.

Kolton Wong and the Cardinals not getting along before the season ever starts. Of course this comes after we just resigned and gave him an extention. Looks like Jedd Ghorko will be more of a full time player now. Wong doesn't want to platoon.

Time to start looking at the Reds. Since last August they seem to have our number. Damn.

Its very obvious to me that Wainwright is no longer our ace or number 1 pitcher. Hasn't been the same since his Tommy John surgery from 2 years ago. After what I saw last year and so far this year, it appears to me he is definitely on the decline.

Something going on with the Reds and their new pitchers. My eyes are wide open now. Something good going on here.

If the Cardinals keep playing at this rate, I'll be an alcoholic by Memorial weekend.

Finally. Lynn gets a win and Oh gets his first save of the year. Hopefully we are on our way now.
